This is from the May 4, 2017 hearing on "Questions, Answers, and Perspectives on the Current State of Airline Travel" held before the Subcommittee on Aviation Operations, Safety, and Security of the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. From the opening statement of Roy Blunt: "It is certainly impossible to ignore the public outcry with incidents that have involved passengers as recently, I believe, even as yesterday. One of the most widely reported incidents, of course, was at Chicago with United Flight 3411. Lots of lessons to be learned, and I'm sure we're going to hear what some of those lessons learned, both with the airport and the airline and the industry, are today in looking at what happened. [...] This is the year where FAA [Federal Aviation Administration] reauthorization needs to occur, between now and September the 30th. Part of this hearing is to determine what's going to be taken care of without the Congress and what needs to be taken care of in the Federal law itself." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Ginger Evans, Scott Kirby, Sharon Pinkerton, Sara Nelson, and Sally Greenberg.
